As Sheriffs across the country are calling for more citizens to be armed in order to defend themselves against rising crime and terrorism, at least one sheriff is not afraid to call out politicians who have taken an adversarial stance to the 2nd amendment.
In the same breath that Milwaukee County Sheriff David A. Clarke Jr. called for law abiding citizens to help combat violence the sheriff said that President Barack Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton were “anti-gun bigots”.
CNSnews brings the story:
On Fox’s Hannity, Sheriff Clarke said the Democratic Party is a rival group to the National Rifle Association. He then said, “as far as President Obama and Mrs. Bill Clinton, they are anti-gun bigots. They are utterly intolerant to anybody else’s view when it comes to — other than their own when it comes to the 2nd Amendment, the shooting sports and self-defense.”
Sheriff Clarke then points out something that we see every election year. He predicts we see Hillary Clinton pretending to be a gun enthusiast while trying to garner the support and votes from the millions of gun owners across the U.S.
“But you watch,” he said. “By next summer, she’ll be photographed walking around in a field like she’s hunting, participating in the shooting sports with a gun resting on her shoulder probably holding it upside-down.”
As for reducing violence, Sheriff Clarke said, “Look, if you want to reduce violence — and the president knows this — you target criminals. You do not target otherwise law-abiding citizens. And you don’t make them have to go jump through hoops in a higher threshold to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights.”
Watch the interview with Sheriff Clarke in the video below. He hits the nail on the head and has more common sense in his pinky than Secretary Clinton has in her entire campaign staff.
